Training Intensity Principles: The Cheating Method




The cheating method is the one exception to maintaining strict form in all bodybuilding movements. It is a method in which you deliberately use other muscle groups in order to aid one primary movement. An example of the cheating method in use would be individuals who arch their back slightly to do one or more additional repetitions of standing barbell curls. It is recommended that you keep cheating movements to the last set of an exercise, and not to go beyond a total of three additional repetitions with this method.

Tips

Do not cheat if it means sacrificing form to the point where you may injure yourself. For example, for standing barbell curls, do not cheat if it means arching your back to a degree that you feel pain or discomfort. Despite cheating, your goal is still to place stress directly on the muscle as much as possible.
